     respect the terms and conditions of the Amended Credit Agreement (including without limitation all conditions and
     requirements for Advances and any financial covenants), any of the Notes issued thereunder or any of the other
     Loan Documents. Nor shall this Third Amendment constitute a waiver or release by the Agent or the Lenders of

     conditions of the Amended Credit Agreement, any of the Notes issued thereunder or any of the other Loan

         5. Borrowers hereby acknowledge and agree that this Third Amendment and the amendments contained
     herein do not constitute any course of dealing or other basis for altering any obligation of Borrowers, any other
     Credit Party, any Guarantor or any other party or any rights, privilege or remedy of the Lenders under the Credit
     Agreement, any other Loan Document, any other agreement or document, or any contract or instrument.

         6. Except as specifically defined to the contrary herein, capitalized terms used in this Third Amendment shall
     have the meanings set forth in the Credit Agreement.

         7. This Third Amendment may be executed in counterpart in accordance with Section 13.9 of the Credit
     Agreement and shall be considered a “Loan Document” within the meaning of the Credit Agreement.
